It’s spring, which means that the travel season is just around the corner. One of the worst feelings is waiting to prepare for a trip until it’s too late for express shipping and last-minute shopping trips.
Start thinking about your summer travel outfits now and head into your trip with ease and options. Plus, summer is one of the best times to travel because usually, the weather requires fewer layers, so you can pack more outfits in your suitcase.
Depending on your vacation, you’ll need different fits to match the occasion. For example, a laid-back pool vibe is different from a late-morning hike or a beachside dinner. But don’t worry! These seven ideas for summer travel outfits are a great place to start!
Cozy Travel Layered Sweat Set
It’s about the journey, not the destination, right? Well, maybe not so much when you’re on your way to your dream destination, but the journey is how you’ll get there! Even when you’re traveling to warmer climates, the temperature shifts that happen while traveling can be drastic. Have you ever hopped on a plane and packed your hoodie in your checked bag, only to find yourself shivering the entire trip? Not worth it. Stay cozy and cute with the Pop Bottles Sweatshirt and Jogger Sweatpants from LETTSGO! This light, neutral brown is a whole vibe, and the outfit definitely signals vacation being mode activated.
Sporty Spice Athlete
Just because you’re wearing workout clothes doesn’t mean you’re always working out. Maybe you’re just walking around town to grab a cup of coffee or run to the grocery store to stock up on supplies. Or, maybe you’re really dedicated to your fitness goals, and you are working out on vacation. More power to you if that’s the case! Regardless of the occasion, throw on this Note to Self long-sleeve crew neck t-shirt over your favorite sports bra and leggings or biker shorts for the perfect errand-running look or casual workout fit. By the way, your note to self is to Let that Sh*t Go! You’re on vacation!

You can wear this simple yet classic vacation outfit with sneakers, sandals, or slides of your choice! Even if you don’t have a dedicated plan for this outfit, it’s a good one to bring, just in case.
When it comes to summer travel, we are loving linen. Why? It’s lightweight and easy to pack. It’s so airy and elegant. It is great for almost any occasion. It’s classy and sophisticated. Try a pair of high-waisted, wide-leg, linen trousers pants with a sleeveless tank! Try to opt for more form-fitting tops when wearing looser pants. This look can be worn with heels or sandals. Keep it simple, or add a chunky bag and statement jewelry to dress it up.
Cutouts for the Win
Cutouts are currently very in and perfect for a stylish summer look. Consider choosing a one-piece swimsuit with stylish cutouts or a bright-colored dress styling sophisticated cutouts. Even a subtle and sophisticated cutout can add an element of mystery and intrigue to your wardrobe. Consider exploring this trend when planning for your summer travel outfits.
Make Moves in a Matching Set
Whether it’s a gym fit, a travel fit, or a day exploring the town, it’s time to make some moves in a matching set. Shorts or a skirt paired with a coordinating crop top could be an option, or choose a cozy matching sleep set to settle into those relaxed vibes. A matching set is a great option you can, of course, wear together as intended or separately for a little variety! It’s a great way to reuse an outfit if needed.
Selling Seashells in Sheer by the Seashore
Sheer clothing is growing in popularity and is perfect for hot summer days. If you’re not so certain about trying this trend, think subtly. Sheer panels that run down the outside seam of pants or a sheer back of a shirt. If you’re feeling bold, try a sheer summer dress or a sheer shirt for an evening on the town!
A Few Tips
Here are a few additional travel tips you might consider:
Strategize Your Packing
When packing for your summer trip, it’s easy to pack ALL the things. However, spend the extra time to strategize outfits, especially when it comes to shoes and accessories. It’s nice to check a bag, but it’s also nice to walk off the plane and out of the airport without waiting for your bag. Ease and access look different for everyone, but make sure you consider the experience you want to have before you pack!
Mix and Match
Also, it’s ok to mix and match outfits, especially staples or simpler pieces. Your outfits will last longer, and you can pack less.
Layers are Everything
Even in the summer, layers are wonderful, especially for travel days! Consider packing a lightweight jean jacket or sweater for cooler evenings.
